Merkley and Bonamici to Hold Joint Town Halls in Yamhill, Clatsop and Columbia Counties
Town Halls are Wednesday, April 1st and Friday, April 3rd in Newberg, Cannon Beach, and Vernonia
Portland, OR – Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici will hold joint town halls in Yamhill, Clatsop and Columbia Counties in the coming weeks.
They will update constituents on their work in Washington, DC and answer questions and invite suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.
“There are huge issues facing Oregonians and the best way for me to effectively advocate for Oregon’s families and businesses is by getting out on the road and holding a town hall in every county, every year to hear directly from Oregonians,” said Merkley. “I invite all residents of Yamhill, Clatsop and Columbia to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and nation.”
“Listening to constituents is an important part of my work,” Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici said. “Town hall meetings provide the opportunity for me to hear about the issues facing this diverse district and learn how I can help. Constituents always provide valuable feedback that informs the work I do when I’m back in Washington, D.C.”
Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. Yamhill, Clatsop and Columbia Counties will be his 222nd, 223rd and 224th town halls as a U.S. Senator.
